All Critics (25) | Top Critics (10)

The acting is so bad that apparently none of the performers ever got another job in the movies, and the costumes in Ben Hur seem less dated that those on display here.

A terrific example of efficient, resourceful filmmaking, and its depiction of urban ills is, if anything, all too prophetic.

Just good enough to make it understandable why someone else might really like it. And it's just bad enough to make you wonder about such a person.

Badly acted, written and directed.

A 1975 exploitation dud, this is the kind of movie Cinemax screens late at night. It's not just bad, it's execrable.

To watch Switchblade Sisters is to visit a never-never land of shopworn media images colliding in a tabloid high school of the mind.

A fantastic girl gang action drama movie, I really liked it. The actors are good, the story is realistic and very good. It's full of action and violence. It's a lot of fun, and I highly recommend it.

such a great movie from the 70's about wayward girls running around being hoodlums! classic one-liners all over the place.
